We'll see, but I know Jilles is an electric driver, and they are not really used to long 1 hour mains...

Also there is quite a difference between qualification and the finals, because drivers who were struggling to get 5 minutes on a tank, have a huge disadvantage during qualifying, but this is different during the finals.....

Toso has won a few big nitro races here in the states before so he should be right there in the mains.

Jilles knows how to drive long finals. In electrics he has ample experience in endurance races and this is also not the first time he runs gas powered cars. And who can forget Jilles' winning 7 lower finals on the trot at the 2007 Winternats only to be denied a well deserved A-Final spot as his body was too low after winning the B-final (he had forgotten to put and extra body clip on). A one hour final is easy for him .

Default TOSO

Just my 2 cents and I am not bias(Ha Ha) but being his Dad I will have all fingers crossed. Having been on podium 2 out of the last for world's he has attended (200mm Brazil 3rd, 8th scale Argentina 3rd and Australia 4th, TQ and 2nd qualifier this race) I think he deserves one so I am hoping luck is on his side this time....
It will be one heck of a race no matter what with the top 4 being so evenly matched....sure hope everyone is cool at the beggining of the race.
Good luck to all and may the best driver win.
